The biggest festivals happening in Hull & East Yorkshire this Summer

Now that legal covid restrictions have ended, there is a whole host of new opportunities for events and festivals to take place across our region, this summer.

We’ve rounded up some of the best music, drinks and food festivals that Hull & East Yorkshire has to offer!

Hull Minster Beer Festival

Fri 13th – Sat 14th August, Hull Minster

As a celebration of all of the beer, music and food festivals we’ve missed out on in the last year, this festival lines up all of our favourite local breweries, musicians and food traders at Trinity Market outside of Hull Minster. Basically, it’s everything you want in one spot!


Thurs 19th – Sun 22nd August, Sledmere House, Driffield

Tribfest is one of our favourite local festivals and quite possibly the biggest music festival for tribute bands in the world. It will be featuring tribute bands performing the music of huge musical acts, such as Oasis, Meat Loaf, AC/DC, Queen, ABBA, and so many more!
